    Default Vote for Wrestling now!

    Here is an E-mail I recieved. I hope everyone takes the few seconds it takes to vote for wrestling!


    WRESTLING NEED YOUR HELP. Please vote it TAKES 9 seconds if your slow! JH
    Hello everyone, a wrestling call to action.

    Do you want to see wrestling in the Olympics in 2020 and beyond? Here you can tell the IOC. RIGHT NOW. We are neck and neck with Squash. Please click on the following link and vote for wrestling. It takes 5 seconds. SECONDS to do. No signing up, no logging in, just go to the web page and vote. You all have supported me in the past and I thank you for it. Please support the sport which has given me everything and relationships with all of you by taking a few seconds to cast you vote..

    Which sport do you think the IOC should vote to include on the Olympic programme for 2020?

    Also if you can forward this out to people you know, to wrestling coaches, clubs, high schools, anyone you know. Wrestling has to win this fight. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, ask people in the street anything you can do for our great sport. We are asking all who supports wrestling to come to action on this right now. May 26 is the first vote by the IOC. Let's show them the world disagrees. Let's Keep Olympic Wrestling. May is world wrestling month - what better way to show it off than to win this poll.

    Thank you so much #KeepOlympicWrestling

    I'm voting repeatedly, but even so... I'll be a bit wary of the whole Olympic wrestling thing until I Know what concessions and rule chamges will need to be made. Already there is talk of dropping more weight classes.

    If it isn't too presumptious to (mis)quote scripture, what does it profit wrestling if it gains the world, but in the end it loses it's own soul?

    Reading some if the ignorant posts by the Squash and Karate camps are laughable. I am actually a fan of Squash and would want it as a sport over several sports currently on the program (but I am not in support of dropping any sport honestly). But of you go out there and say it is more universal, physically demanding, and popular then wrestling then you haven't done your research. I won't even touch on the Karate group who were proven wrong by MMA a long time ago
